Comics Workshop!

Folktales, Fairy Tales, Monsters, Myths & Legends: A Comics Workshop!

Join UVM Special Collections and the Vermont Folklife Center on October 26, 2018 from 2pm-6pm for a free comics workshop!

We'll look at basic techniques of cartooning and comics creation, then try our hands at drawing original comics based on folk tales, fairy tales, myths and legends. Our discussions will address elements of readability, visual impact, point of view, research, and the responsibilities of the artist as an interpreter of traditional tales and cultures.

NOTE: Workshop held at UVM Special Collections, Marsh Room, Billings Library, 48 University Place, University of Vermont.

Folktales, Fairy Tales, Monsters, Myths & Legends is free and is limited to 25 participants. Registration is required. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, and half of the slots are reserved for UVM Affiliates.
